Our admissions process is a best-fit selective process. Our goal is to ensure a diverse, gender-balanced, multi-age school community dedicated to Montessori education. To be considered for enrollment, parents must complete an application and schedule a classroom observation and interview with the Head of School. The criteria by which students are considered for enrollment is based on the following:
- Potential student displays a pleasant demeanor and is able to answer questions regarding their interests and hobbies.
- Parents/Legal Guardians of potential student convey a basic understanding of the concept of Montessori and share a philosophical match as to its ideals.
- Potential elementary student has Montessori preschool/kindergarten background. (Not required, but preferred.)
Upon acceptance, a non-refundable enrollment deposit is due: Elementary $875, Children’s House $600, to reserve placement in the child’s respective class.
Our Children’s House program offers an authentic early childhood Montessori learning environment for children ages 2 1/2 – 6.
Our Elementary classroom is a community of children ages 6 – 12, grades 1st – 6th. Children are eligible for enrollment if they are age 6 by October 1.
Applications for re-enrollment of current families are due on or before March 15 for guaranteed fall placement. Current families may submit applications for siblings at this time as well; siblings receive priority placement.
Enrollment interviews for new families begin March 15. If space is available, enrollment is ongoing throughout the school year. Because our program is individually paced, we can provide a smooth transition for your child at any level.
Students will be considered for enrollment at Spruce Tree Montessori School without regard to race, color or ethnicity, sex, religion, physical disability or background.
